Modern Slavery Statement
Modern slavery is a crime resulting in an abhorrent abuse of the human rights of vulnerable workers, to which Mitchell & Webber Ltd are committed to ensuring we play no part.
We are dedicated to acting ethically, with integrity and transparency in all of our business dealings and relationships. Because of this we ensure that effective systems and controls are in place to ensure that modern day slavery and human trafficking are not taking place anywhere within either our own business or our supply chain -.
As a key supplier of Fuel and Heating products in the South West, we always work to the highest ethical standards and ensure that we comply with all laws, regulations and rules that are relevant to our business.
Slavery and human trafficking are totally unacceptable and we will not tolerate forced labour of any description within our business or in our supply chains. We recognise our moral and legal responsibility to help prevent modern slavery and human trafficking and commit to taking robust and effective steps to ensure no such activities arise in the operation of our business- consistent with our obligations under the Modern Day Slavery Act 2015
Our aim is to achieve the highest ethical standards in this regard and as a minimum, we will comply with all relevant legislation. We all have a responsibility to be alert to the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in all our daily activities. With that in mind, our employees are expected to report to us any concerns they may have in this regard and our managers are expected to act upon any concerns raised without delay.
Mitchell & Webber also expects the same high standards from all of its suppliers, contractors and other business partners and, as part of our contracting processes, include specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery, and expects that our suppliers will in turn hold their own suppliers to the same standards.
